In the wireless world, there is nothing worse than being on an important conference call and realizing that your battery is about to die. "No worries," you think to yourself, as you're in the car and have your trusty car charger. After searching the passenger floorboard for minutes and swerving through traffic in the process, you realize that you left it on your desk at home - and, as if the phone has a mind of its own, realizes you left it and shuts off.
Maybe that's just my experience, but it's annoying nonetheless. For those that experience similar issues, Nokia has just the handset for you. Announced today, the Nokia E52 offers eight hours of talk time, and an astounding 23 days of standby time. With battery life being that impressive, one would think that the device lacks features. Not so - shipping later in the year for around €245 (~ $326), the E52 will offer a 1GB memory card, A-GPS, HSDPA/HSUPA, 3.2 megapixel camera, Mobile VPN, and Exchange and Lotus Notes support.
